    Ian and I went to High School together, we were teammates on the HS football team, and we even were roommates for a year in a house we rented while attended The University of Cincinnati. Many years ago on Christmas, Ian and his family invited me to Vail Colorado for a skiing and snowboarding trip - we had a blast! Although we went our separate ways many years ago, our friendship and memories will last forever. My thoughts, prayers, and condolences go out to Ian and all of his family and friends. You will be missed, but never forgotten. Rest In Peace my friend.
